Interval Recording Programs

Looking to use whole or partial interval data collection methods to measure behavior? You can easily set up a program to prompt therapists, teachers, and parents through the process!

Partial Interval Recording #

From Programs , select Interval from the “Add Program” drop-down box.

Enter a program name (required).

Instructions – List an objective for your learner. Detail any directions for therapists/parents via text and/or a demonstration video. Select this program’s status (Waiting, Baseline, Active, Hold, Closed).

Targets – Enter the target behavior(s) that you will be collecting occurrence data on during each interval. Specify each target’s status using the drop-down list on the right-hand side.

Data Recording – Select the prompt level template you would like to use. Typically, a template with two options available would be used to document occurrence/non-occurrence (ex. Yes/No, +/-, Observed/Not Observed). Next, select the default observation status; this is the response that will remain for the interval unless an observation is recorded (for partial interval programs, this would typically be your non-occurrence option such as No, -, or Not Observed). If you would prefer to not have a default response (showing a blank space in the data if, for instance, there was no opportunity for that behavior), simply select the icon to remove the default selection.

Once you have added the duration for observation intervals (in seconds), you can either select Save or continue to customize with the following options:

As shown below, you also have the option to choose whether you want to interval timer to start manually or automatically when the session begins. You can also opt for an audible warning sound to let you know that the current interval is almost over by selecting Warn before interval ends and adding your timing preference (in seconds) for this warning. You also have the option to specify what sound you would like to alert the user and can hear a sample of the various sounds by selecting them then pressing the neighboring play button.

Whole Interval Recording #

From Programs , select Interval from the “Add Program” drop-down box.

As shown below, you also have the option to choose whether you want to interval timer to start manually or automatically when the session begins. You can also opt for an audible warning sound (a quick buzz) to let you know that the current interval is almost over by selecting Warn before interval ends and adding your timing preference (in seconds) for this warning.
